Episode Overview

Do you ever feel like you can’t get out of your own way? Do you feel like you’re continually creating problems for yourself? It could look something like:

  • Workout procrastination
  • Using food to distract us from hard things
  • Avoiding creating goals because we’re afraid we won’t reach them
  • Telling ourselves, “why even bother?” when we know we can’t commit 100%

In this week’s episode, we want to share the steps we take to break free when we are caught in this nasty cycle. Tune in to find out how you can stop the cycle of self-sabotage for good and steadily move toward your weight loss goals.

I thank these ladies for showing me another way to be in this world. I no longer obsess over my weight or food. I very much look forward to each podcast released!


My Morning Coffee Date 

Especially in 2020, having a little positivity is so important. Every time I listen to this podcast, not only do I have a smile on my face, I discover something about myself. And I consider myself to have a whole hell of a lot of self-awareness to begin with! It's almost cliche to say this now but it truly feels like you're having coffee with girlfriends!
